Ernst Marcus was born September 3, 1856, in Kamen in Westphalia. He studied law in Bonn and Berlin. In 1889, while working as an assessor, he became interested in philosophical questions. In 1890 he became a judge in Essen. He married Berta Auerbach in 1893, and they had three children. In 1899 he started meeting with the philosopher Salomo Friedlaender. Very early, Friedlaender became aware of Ernst Marcus's potential and the relevance of his ideas. He supported him and admired his theses. When Friedlaender published under the pseudonym Mynona he even used Marcus as a figure called "Sucram". In 1904 Ernst Marcus met Rebecca Hanf, who was interested in philosophy as well. They became friends and corresponded until Marcuss death

Philosophically, Ernst Marcus dealt with Immanuel Kant's and Albert Einstein's theories. Ernst Marcus regarded himself as the "one who resurrected Kant from death and who understood Kant utterly". Ernst Marcus died in Essen on October 29, 1928
